Politicians, athletes, friends, companions, and journalists comment on Bernard's charm, his rise to prominence in sports and politics, and his subsequent problem with the law.

Description: Second attempt to make a detail movie out of the 200,000-plus feet of movie which Soviet film-maker Sergei Eisenstein shot during 1931-32 in Mexico for American socialist creator Upton Sinclair, his wife and a tiny company of investors. The projected film, to be named "Que Viva Mexico", was never finished due to exhaustion of funds and Stalin's demand that Eisenstein return to the USSR (he had been absent since 1929). The first attempt at editing the footage, in the USA, resulted in "Thunder Over Mexico", released in 1934. In 1940, Marie Seton, from the UK, acquired some of the footage from the Sinclairs in an attempt to create a better cutting according to Eisenstein's skeletal outline for the proposed film. This movie has apparently been lost.
